Finding Answers Together
Typical treatments for Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) often leave the patient feeling like there’s not much that can be done. Despite troubling symptoms — headaches, sleep disruption, cognitive failures, anxiety and depression — current standard of care for TBI medical treatment calls for rest, over the counter medications, and antidepressants. The medical school of thought says if there is no significant physical injury or brain swelling, there simply isn’t a lot of active treatment that can be done. Therefore, TBI patients must rest for weeks, and usually go through a gradual reintroduction of exercise and mental activity (school, work). Sometimes, physical therapy or balance therapy is necessary.
With Neuro-Laser Foundation, we will find answers together. Our expertise combines a wealth of medical knowledge with a passion for diagnosing complex psychiatric conditions. This has led us to study the effectiveness of various treatment options and modalities that complement typical medical treatments.
The Neuro-Laser Foundation centers are able to provide specialized psychiatric evaluation, interpretation of brain scans, integration of services and treatments, and ongoing evaluation of treatment response. Dr. Theodore Henderson leads NLF’s psychiatric diagnosis and treatment. A psychiatrist will consult with you on the findings of the evaluations and documentation (studies), to determine the best mode of therapy for you. We will supervise the therapeutic treatment guidelines for your care and will also supervise your psychological care and therapy sessions. Medication changes may be recommended for symptomatic control and long term outcomes. We will review your case prior to referral for NIR Laser Therapy, Hyperbaric Oxygen therapy, Ketamine therapy, and nutritional recommendation along with your other providers.
Neurologists at the Neuro-Laser Foundation centers provide specialized neurological evaluation related to TBI, collaborative interpretation of neuroimaging, and ongoing evaluation of treatment response. Our patent-pending speciality is applying near infrared-light treatments (NILT), which has shown to be effective, according to this recently published study. The initial evaluation includes thorough neurological exam, review all relevant case records, and perform some initial psychological testing. We may order additional studies, and may perform an EEG, to determine if the electrical circuits of your brain have also been injured. We will also determine the exact type of injury: auto accident related, worker compensation injury, ballistic acoustic injury, visual involvement, abuse related, senior fall incident and PTSD or other issues. A thorough history and evaluation will be established for your injury. Any medication changes will be directed by the medical staff involved in your care, although we may make recommendations in this area. All cases involving trauma or injury will require this evaluation.
The Neuro-Laser Foundation features a broad spectrum of modalities to support each patient’s treatment plan. As physicians who are passionate about finding answers for patients, we blend traditional medicine with more recent scientific discoveries shown to be successful. These may include:
